Even a city-boy like me knows that, in a contest between “huge hairy animal with claws and teeth” and “middle-aged man in PJs,” claws and teeth win.
Memo to Governor Shumlin: Let the bear have the food!
Shumlin says he was in bed in his rented Montpelier home late Wednesday night when he heard what turned out to be four bears in the backyard.
He says he looked out and saw the bears, including two cubs. (1) He tried to chase the bears away, but they kept coming back.
Shumlin says he ran out barefoot in an attempt to rescue his birdfeeders. He says one of the bears charged him on the porch.
Vermont came within three feet of having to call a special election.
At least Governor Palin would have remembered to bring the rifle. Governor Shumlin, on the other hand, is not smarter than the average bear.
(1) And what part of “momma grizzly” does this guy not understand?
